I was in this area of town so I stopped. The beer is split up between three areas. The first is on the floor. This area consist of a few bombers, six packs, seasonal offerings. The second area is predominately six packs and such in a cooler. The last area has a few odds and ends mostly bombers and wine. The store is clean and the bottles arent dusty. The clerk on duty really knew his stock and was more than happy to show me around. The selection was pretty descent for a small store. The store had Scaldis, Duvel and Bells products. I bought a bottle of Hippie IPA. This is a good beer stop if you are in the area. For me this store is just way out of the way. I wish I had a small store like this in my area. Oh well!...

First off let me just say that for a small gas station like place it was not a terrible store at all. Now I would not recommend driving way out of your way to get here just for the selection as it will not really be worth your time, but if you are just driving though this is really not a bad place to end up. Walked in and did not really see the beer selection, but was directed over to where it was. Not bad at all I have to say. Some stone and Barrelhouse Bombers were the first thing I saw along with six packs of Great Lakes, Rogue, and DFH. I wish my stores carried that stuff. There were a few scattered Belgians mixed in but nothing really shocking. Prices were about average for the area. Staff was very friendly and gracious to point out anything I needed. Overall not a bad stop at all I you are in the area, but I would really not expect to find anything new or unusual here.

WOW!!!! this is GREAT news!!!! I havn't seen Mitch since they moved from their old Rapid Run location right down the street from my old house, Its great to hear that he's kept his old ways by stocking what the customer wants. In fact Mitch used to keep at least two twelve packs of mello yello in the freezer just for me. I need to stop in there sometime to see what he's got, sadly last time I saw Mitch was before I started drinking and before they moved. maybe we can get him to carry rare singles?

edit--- just stopped in, mitch remembered me!!!! just garabbed a few odds and ends... including a stone runation IPA bomber.... ice cold of course

Holy wow I was expecting a good selection from this place but I was very impressed. Found some Three Floyds which I have been searching for and best of all it's really not out of my way to get there unlike places like The Party Source or Jungle Jim's

But while the selection is very nice and it's a easy for me to get there what really impressed me was the service. I am unsure of the guy's name but he was extremely nice and when I said I was in here to buy some beer we talked about beer for a good 15 minutes. He showed off all his selection showed me the seasonals and told me of what beer will be coming in the future.

So who ever lives on the West side of Cincinnati and reads this do yourself a favor and check this place out and do it a favor tell your friends about it. The more money they make the more variety the store can buy.

This store takes suggestions so if you don't see a beer that you want talk to the clerk he will do all he can to carry the beer you want.

For those times when I have neither the time nor the patience to go to the Party Store in Newport, KY, I have found my oasis. This may be the only Qwik Mart store that carries more micros and import beers than it carries mainstream. Thanks to the input of maybe a half dozen local beer enthusiasts, the owners have taken an affinity toward stocking an impressive selection given the limited shelf space of a Qwik Mart.

I knew I had struck gold last summer when on their top shelf was Victory Hop Devil. I hadn't visited since Christmas, but stopped in a few days ago to find Allagash Grand Cru on the chill. Amazing. A big thumbs-up to someone at Premium Beverage and Supply in Columbus for seeing this write-up and driving down to see Mitch, the owner. Now Mitch has access to a ramped-up selection of beers across America and around the globe. Woo hoo!

Mitch is a super guy and loves to talk about beer though he rarely drinks it himself. He let me see his catalog and took some suggestions on a few beers to purchase. Unfortunately, Westvleteran 12 was unavailable, lol, but it's in the catalog! He's currently checking into some Dreadnaught, maybe I'll get lucky there... For now, slake your thirst on the seasonal 3L bottle of Heineken, or try a bottle or two from the most tremendous line-up of beers for such a small store. Seasonal picks include beers from Anderson Valley, Weyerbacher, Allgauer, Peroni, Tecate, Thirsty Dog, Rogue (Dead Guy only), Great Lakes, Victory, St. Bernardus, New Holland, Brooklyn, Lagunitas, Chimay, Schneider, Ayinger, a pick or two from the major quality breweries, and of course the standard mega fare. Plenty of options, you are bound to be impressed by what you see in this place. If you see something on the floor that you like, they generally have some of it chilled in the back and are happy to get you the cold one instead.
